Born from the idea of conducting an oral history project for the Archives, this documentary-style video was created by the Lynn Library to commemorate the Conservatory of Music's 20th-anniversary. The goal was to focus on three major themes: the Conservatory’s history, educational value, and future.
The music you hear in the background was commissioned by the Lynn Library, which was composed by Conservatory alumni Alfredo Cabrera. It’s called To the Man with All the Knowledge and dedicated to his composition professor, Dr. Thomas McKinley. Alfredo said this was how Dr. Robertson introduced Dr. McKinley to him when he began studying at Lynn.
